Update: Portsmouth Police Aren’t Exempt from CopBlock.org

Last year, almost to the day, I was in Portsmouth, New Hampshire with Pete. We were there to visit friends and decided to spend the day at the local Starbucks working on details for Liberty On Tour 2010 edition. That’s when I noticed officer Hood of the Portsmouth police department parking illegally, several times, outside the Starbucks.

I decided to make a phone call to the police station about the double standard police have when enforcing their laws against other ‘protectors of society.’ You can guess how that turned out for me, so, when we returned this year, I was stunned when I (thought I) saw the same officer park illegally right in front of me. Beau and I quickly ran off to ask the officer about his double standards toward parking laws.

As I approached I realized the officer was parked in a stall designated for police cruisers only. I knew for a fact that such a spot didn’t exist a year ago so I waited around to talk with Hood, who was busy with an elderly person. When he finished I asked Hood if the parking stalls where issued due to our video and he wouldn’t comment with the camera on, citing, “I’m going to tell you what I told you last year.”

I can’t be positive but I think CopBlock.org had a role in the decision to assign police officers parking stalls, so you can create change outside the system. See the first video from Portsmouth below.
